The fleur-de-lis and the Tudor rose, the salamander and the lion: symbols of English and French rule are everywhere in Parliament Hill’s Centre Block. Portraits of the French monarchs who governed New France from the 16th century to the 18th century hang in the Salon de la Francophonie. Nearby, in the Senate foyer, are the British monarchs who succeeded them.
